Ozark is a wonderful place to live and raise a family. The schools are tremendous, cost of living low and because of it's proximity to both a larger metropolitan ares (Springfield) and a large, busy lake (Table Rock in Branson) the possibilities for entertainment are endless. Shops, restaurants, plays and art can all be found within 20 minutes and then time to rest on the lake during the weekends, which is only 45 minutes away!

We love living in Ozark! It has a small town feel yet it offers many restaurants and shopping experiences. Our favorite element of Ozark is the Finley River. The city has a beautiful river-side park where many special events occur. The river meanders thru Ozark inviting you to walk or float in many different locations, or just prop up a chair and veg. The people are very friendly. Ozark is proud of its history, its old-fashioned charm, its friendly people and its natural beauty.
Ozark is a very safe place to grow up. There is very little crime and has that small town feel even though it has grown rapidly into a a moderately sized city. The schools are academically advanced, the housing market is always steady, and the job market is continuing to thrive.
